PHILADELPHIA – The extraordinary career of Gina Kennedy ended with another individual national championship after the senior defeated her teammate Hana Moataz, 3-0, in the Ramsay Cup finals. The United Kingdom native exits Harvard as one of the most decorated student-athletes in program history. Kennedy has now been a part of four straight team national championships to go along with three individual titles and the CSA's Betty Richey Award, which she won earlier this year.
Moataz put up a fight early on, pushing the first set past 11, eventually falling to her captain, 13-11. Kennedy went on to win the next two sets by a combined score of 22-5. Kennedy becomes the 19th national champion in program history, and the winner of the second Crimson vs. Crimson final match.
The winning did not stop there, as Eleonore Evans and Hannah Craig both triumphed in their matches to win their respective brackets in the Holleran Cup. Evans finished off her Harvard career with a 3-2 win over Anna Hughes of Drexel to win the South bracket.
In the West bracket final, Hannah Craig upset the No. 1 overall seed, Emme Leonard, 3-1 to earn her first Holleran Cup title. Craig and Evans both completed undefeated 2019-20 seasons with their respective victories.
